This is my first year of chickening so I dont know what molting looks like. In addition, she is only 7 months old. She preens herself and pulls out a lot of feathers. At first I thought it was mites even though I didnt find any so I treated her with 2 powders and a flea bath. After all this she pulled out 30 feathers in 8 hours. So then I thought she pulled them out from stress because her gal pal was taken away by a fox. I tried to apply a mix of Vaseline and red pepper to stop her picking and a lot of feathers were pulling out just by them sticking to my fingers. In addition she has a respiratory and eye infection I am treating with great success with Terramycin soluble powder at 1 Tsp per quart. and topical antibacterial gel around her eyes. So, do you think it is molting?
